France manager Didier Deschamps has waded into Paul Pogba’s ongoing issues at Manchester United.
The midfielder’s form has dipped lately and, as a result, he has found himself in and out of the first team of late – injury problems notwithstanding.
Speaking to L’Equipe, Deschamps offered his opinion that Pogba cannot be happy with his current situation at Old Trafford, given how much the player feels that he can offer the team – though he did stress that he wasn’t privy to all of the facts:
“This is a situation that he must not appreciate because of everything he would have been able to offer. There must be numerous reasons. He cannot be happy with what he is going through with his club.
“It’s not specific to Paul. It can happen elsewhere that a player is a bit down or is going through a particular situation with his club.
“That could be Paul now, or others at other times, and I will do as I always do and talk to that player to understand better, because I don’t have all the information.”
Pogba was on the bench once again as Man United saw off the challenge of Brighton in the FA Cup quarter final, the one trophy that Jose Mourinho and his side are still in contention for given Man City’s virtually unassailable lead at the top of the Premier League.
The former Juventus man is currently on international duty with Deschamps and France, with friendly internationals against Colombia and Russia to be played over the next week or so.
